"Something good is going to happen today"
Then let your heart and mind be open to the possibility. Something good is going to happen today. I don't yet know what that will be. Yet it's an uncertainty I can live with.
Isn't it always the "not knowing" that we find unsettling as adults? We feel a constant need to produce outcomes, a need to plan, prepare and organize. A need to take control of our lives. Planning is our way of seeing the future. We create expectations and execute the actions toward meeting a goal or deadline. This is the training we have been programmed to act out.
Even though I am the inventor of Knees and Paws, I don't see myself as an executive. And executive executes. Execute conjures images of execution, of hangings in the wild west or of medieval France and the guillotine.
It's true that sometimes I entertain a fantasy in which I wear beautiful business attire and work among professionals in a climate controlled office with big windows and potted plants. In this vision I have an office with my name on the door and a wastebasket that the housekeeper never has to empty because I remember being the housekeeper once.
Something good is going to happen today. I won't be walking into the fantasy office. It's Saturday. Today I get to enjoy our comfy home with my beautiful children. I am blessed with time to work on creative projects and to write this blog. I might take a walk or catch a double feature at the drive in theater. I'm not really sure how everything will unfold.
Something good is already happening.
You are here.
